ABB develops energy calculator iPhone App

ABB, app, variable speed drives

ABB has developed a free energy-calculator application (App) for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod. It enables end-users to calculate the savings they can achieve by installing variable-speed drives (VSDs) to control motors.

The App can make quick comparisons between motors with VSDs and those running direct-on-line without any speed-control device. From key operating parameters, the App estimates how much CO2, energy and cost can be saved by installation an ABB VSD.

The App displays a picture of the most appropriate product, and a product summary is available. The user can then place an enquiry or ask for more information.
